Add variety into your daily routine without having to commit to registered programs.

Stay and Play programs combine the need for both child and adult playcome burn off energy and explore with your little ones. Enjoy a variety of climbing equipment, ride on toys, sports equipment and more. This is a no structured, drop-in gym program and parent participation is required. Grandparents, nannies and caregivers are welcome.

Children aged 0-5 will enjoy playing and making new friends in a stimulating environment, while parents will enjoy socializing with other community members.

We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to access and attend quality programs and services within their community. With our ongoing commitment to providing safe, nurturing environments that foster inclusiveness, respect and compassion, we are creating impactful experiences, where our children can learn, explore, grow and develop.

During a child’s development, it is crucial that parents take time to engage in their community with socialization. It can become comfortable to stay at home and play; however, studies have shown that playgroups benefit children by allowing them to develop social skills, emotional confidence, imagination, creativity and physical fitness.

According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, there are five essentials elements to meaningful play. They include:

  1. Children making their own decisions
  2. Children being intrinsically motivated
  3. Children becoming immersed in the moment
  4. Playing must be spontaneous, not scripted
  5. Playing must be enjoyable

These elements are also necessary for adult play. This is sometimes forgotten during the early years of a child’s development, yet is a crucially important part of healthy living. Drop-in around your child’s schedule and see how Stay and Play programs can benefit your child’s development.
